Description

INDUSTRIAL-SCALE METHAMPHETAMINE/MDMA LABORATORY IN CIKANDE, INDONESIA.

DEA.

In late 2005, Indonesian authorities raided a very large clandestine laboratory located in Cikande, Indonesia (located approximately 60 kilometers west of Jakarta). The operation was producing large-scale quantities of both methamphetamine and MDMA. Subsequently, two chemists from the DEA Special Testing and Research Laboratory (Dulles, Virginia) visited the site to document the laboratory setup and collect samples.

The site consisted of a large warehouse divided into multiple rooms with a variety of chemicals located throughout (see Photo 11). The methamphetamine and MDMA production facilities were both located in the back of the warehouse, hidden behind a wall and accessed via a secret door. Photo 11

Methamphetamine was being synthesized in two large reactors using ephedrine, red phosphorus, and iodine (see one of the reactors in Photo 12). Each batch started with 100 kilograms of l-ephedrine hydrochloride. After the reaction was complete, the methamphetamine base was isolated, converted to the hydrochloride, and recrystallized from a minimal amount of water, to yield approximately 75 kilograms of "Ice"-style d-methamphetamine hydrochloride. MDMA was also being synthesized in two large reactors (see Photo 13), using 3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl-2-propanone (MDP2P), methylamine, aluminum foil, and mercuric chloride, in methanol. Each batch started with 20 liters of MDP2P. After the reaction was complete, the MDMA base was isolated and distilled, converted to the hydrochloride, and crystallized in freezers to yield approximately 8 kilograms of MDMA hydrochloride. Additional materials and equipment indicated the large-scale production of MDMA (Ecstasy) tablets. The equipment included a 21-stage rotary tablet press capable of producing from 100,000 to 250,000 tablets in 8 hours. Also present were new and used commercial mixers and drying ovens. Tableting materials included cellulose, starch, dyes, and caffeine.
